The Innovation Partnering Program gathers market-ready, commercially-viable, innovations into the largest global technology accelerator program.

Early-stage companies are reviewed and selected by our board of corporate and investment partners. Technical submissions are reviewed and selected by our symposium chairs and program review committee.

The 2018 TechConnect World Innovation event encompasses the 2018 SBIR/STTR National Conference, and Nanotech2018 – the world’s largest nanotechnology event.
